F3 driver Peroni walks away after huge crash at Monza
Formula 3 driver Alex Peroni thankfully walked away after he was involved in a terrifying crash during Saturday's race at the Italian Grand Prix.
Peroni hit a sausage kerb on the outside of the Parabolica and was pitched metres in the air, spinning and landing on top of the barriers.
He was able to escape the car and was taken away in the medical centre for check-ups. There appeared to be marshals stationed at the scene of Peroni's landing, but their status was not immediately confirmed by the FIA.
Robert Shwarzman won the race, with Peroni's crash occurring with four laps to go.
Safety in motorsport has been put in the spotlight after Anthoine Hubert's fatal crash in Belgium last week and it remains to be seen if the kerbs will remain in place for the F2 and F1 action later on Saturday.
Friday's F3 qualifying had to be red-flagged and essentially cancelled after farcical scenes saw the majority of the field bunched up together trying to secure a tow. No fewer than 19 drivers were given grid penalties as a result.
